Extreme Abilities

You're only as limited as you allow yourself to be


Adaptive Surfer, motivator, pioneer and differently abled trendsetter, 


In this blog, Extreme Abilities CEO and  T8 complete paraplegic shares his view of the world from the perspective of living life in a wheelchair, paralyzed from his chest down. Follow Dries Millard and read his exclusive blog on how exactly someone who is paralyzed can be independent and active like he is.



Its been about three years now that I haven’t been able to be a part of normal society, being stuck between hospital and the safety of my house, dealing with what now seems like a nightmare gone by. Spinal cord injury just makes me understand each time that life is precious and that we don’t always appreciate it in the way that we could.

Since the end of 2016 I endured 7 major surgeries, 4 months of hospital isolation, loss of my left kidney and I peeped through death’s door twice. I lost a lot of social and professional connections sand gained a lot of new scars and a harsh new perspective on what it means to be alive. Life goes on and people live their lives and so I’m doing the same. 

I’m glad to be alive and able to dream and live towards making my dreams reality and I have a better understanding of my place on earth and what I want to achieve with the time I have remaining, with the words of JBP in the back of my head “Do what is meaningful, not what is expedient” I find the courage to endure and to enjoy this life.

    First of all I would like to say superb blog! I had
    a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts
    before writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts
    in getting my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to
    be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or tips? Many thanks! credit scores
